“Over last 3 years at UVA he mentored more than 10 undergraduate students and 2 master students. His dedication to “not only learn but also teach” is exquisite. All of his students who already graduated, started medical or graduate school. During the training Dr. Przanowski focuses on teaching not only basic techniques, like cloning, cell culture or mice handling, but also critical scientific thinking. His students received awards for science projects conducted under his mentoring (i.e. The Double Hoo Research Grant, The Harrison Undergraduate Research Award). They are also authors of multiple scientific articles.” Roza (University of Virginia)
